In response to my criticism posted yesterday, author Alan Corey blogged his defense of his money-saving techniques, which include using the same popcorn bag to get free refills for three months and claiming dropped cellphone calls to get free minutes.

He says he gets plenty of fan mail from readers, and it's only pesky journalists who are critical. Being unethical, he says, requires a victim, and his behavior didn't hurt anyone. Readers, I'd love to know what you think. Would you reuse the same popcorn bag for months?
